What to expect

Our Kindergarten provides a wide range of opportunities and experiences to encourage our youngest children to develop their natural curiosity and thinking skills. In this way, they will develop the foundations upon which they will continue to build throughout their school career and beyond.

“Through the application of Edtech, we aim to make the access to learning anytime and anywhere possible.”

At LISM, we recognize that in today’s interconnected and technology-centric world, the learning environment can be virtual, online, remote as well as the physical place of learning such as a classroom or library. Through the application of Edtech, we aim to make the access to learning anytime and anywhere possible.

Developing students’ critical thinking and social engagement with Edtech is an essential ingredient to modern pedagogy.

The Liwa Education E-Learning portal is designed to support parents, students, and teachers to make effective use of the online learning opportunities within our schools to support achievement and engagement across all our subject areas.

We encourage you to take the time to understand more about the products and applications on offer and how they can be used to support anytime, anywhere learning and engagement.

International Assessments

MAP® Growth™

MAP® Growth™ measures what students know and informs what they’re ready to learn next. By dynamically adjusting to each student’s responses, MAP Growth creates a personalized assessment experience that accurately measures performance. Timely, easy-to-use reports help teachers teach, students learn, and administrators lead.

Every question on a MAP Growth assessment is calibrated to RIT scale. Because the equal-interval scale is continuous across grades, educators can trust it to track longitudinal growth over a student’s entire career. Putting assessment into action means using MAP Growth data to pinpoint the instructional areas where students are ready to tackle—whether they are on, above, or below grade level. It reveals how much growth has occurred between testing events and, when combined with our norms, shows projected proficiency. Educators can track growth through the school year and over multiple years.

Classrooms and outdoor play

Our school has creative and exciting learning environments that help our students stay engaged and feel excited about participating while promoting collaborative learning. We have an amazing Outdoor area, a space for children to interact with the natural world through play-based multi-sensory activities. Our goal is to increase curiosity in children by providing opportunities to explore, observe and investigate.

Our values

The core values that sit at the heart of the school and will be modeled by staff and promoted in the students through our teaching, learning and everyday practice are:






Pastoral Care

Liwa International School – Al Mushrif puts the welfare and happiness of all its students at the heart of everything we do. We have created a safe and loving environment for our students so that they can learn and develop socially and emotionally. In addition, we have created a number of policies that underpin our work, including child protection and safeguarding policies. On hand, we have a social worker.

Transition to elementary school

Kindergarten and first-grade students are provided with opportunities to meet and share experiences. We also have our first graders write letters to the kindergarteners at the end of the school year to provide encouragement and advice.
